From Sam Knox at the IHSA:

The NASO (National Association of Sports Officials) intended to hold its annual Officials Summit in Alabama this summer. As with many things these days, those plans changed.

Now, the NASO will offer the first-ever virtual Officials Summit. It’s available to all officials across the country August 24-27. The better news . . . . It’s FREE!

Here is a link to the NASO site:

We encourage you register for the summit and take the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills from veteran officials in all sports. You will likely recognize the names and faces of officials/presenters you frequently see in college and pro games on TV. They enjoy officiating as much as you and want to help you get better. Simply visit the NASO site to learn more about the summit.

We all face a very challenging school year. Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we do our best for thousands of students around the state who love to play sports for their schools.
